've just actually just straight from a meeting with president karzai of afghanistan who here in london for this conference. and i think it's important that the government of afghanistan does more to demonstrate that it's toughing out corruption. that it's embarking on property government and proper reform. but i think we should be clear, you know, we're not in afghanistan. to back up one particular government or one particular individual. and i don't think we're in afghanistan, frankly, to produce the perfect jeffersonian democracy. we're there because we do nt want ala and the taliban to have control of that country again. and we should have a pretty hard-headed view that what we are in this for is some basic level of stability and security so that country doesn't threaten our own security back at home any more. >> do you believe -- >> and in that case we did:bring our troops home. >> rose: do you believe that can be achieved in the next two years because the president said et cetera's going to begin to think about bringing american troops back after 18 months. >> my view is, obviousl
. but first, while afghan president hamid karzai was swearing in his cabinet this morning, insurgents staged the biggest assault on the capital city of kabul since october. an iranian press tv crew was right there right before an explosion went off. the press tv correspondent who you saw at the beginning of that clip was injured in that blast and was taken to the hospital. the reason the camera was already rolling when that explosion went off is because that bomb went off midway through the attack. a suicide bomber first blew himself up outside the central bank. the central bank is on the same traffic circle as hamid karzai's presidential palace. this was in effect the equivalent of a suicide bomber hitting lafayette park right across the street from the white house or even the u.s. treasury building right next door. after the initial suicide bombing, gunmen stormed into and took up positions in nearby buildings. then in the middle of that fight, another suicide bombing which you just saw. the driver was in a vehicle that was marked as an ambulance. all the battles raged in the center of dow
attackers were killed. it started as 14 members of hamid karzai's cabinet were about to be sworn in. >>> and the man who shot pope john paul ii was released this morning, taken to a military facility. he served 19 years in an italian prison for a 1981 attack. he was extradited to turkey where he served ten years. >>> they lived through tuesday's earthquake. now hungry, thirsty and desperate, the people of haiti are doing whatever they can to survive. >> for tens of thousands of people, that means crowding into tents and tarps. soledad o'brien takes us inside one of these tent cities. >> reporter: there was enough water in one of the makeshift camps to give some of the children a shower. there was a little food. a makeshift clinic. they even picked up the garbage. but many of the tens of thousands of haitians displaced by the earthquake have no house to go back to, and no new place to go. they live beneath recovered sheets and blankets in the grass and concrete. these hot and dirty encampments that have sprung up in parks and plazas are now their homes. >> the people of haiti need th
. >>> at a security summit in london afghan president hamid karzai described his plan to reintegrate taliban fighters into a law-abiding society if they promise to renounce violence. the idea is to lure them back to civilian life with jobs and housing. karzai secured $140 million in pledges to fund this effort which was endorsed by secretary of state hillary clinton. and others. >>> the senate today confirming ben bernanke for a second term as chairman of the federal reserve. by one of the smallest margins of all time. the vote 70-30. >>> the author of "catcher in the rye" j.d. salinger has died. the book was his only novel and sold more than 60 million copies since its publication back in 1951. salinger was well known as a recluse who shunned publicity. he was 91, anderson. >> sad news with that. >>> coming up, salesmen in chief. reaction to the state of the union address preaching to the base. did he win over independents? supreme showdown between justice alito and the president. a fascinating moment. what was behind the scowl, though? why the nasty look? we'll get an insider's briefing from jeffre

karzai and with his cabinet on numerous occasions, notably with the trip that hillary clinton and i had made to afghanistan on october 18 and 19 in conjunction with the inauguration. the afghans understood this, they are very comfortable with it. so i need to underscore that's what july 2011 means. not a withdraw, but the start of a responsibility transition in which american combat troops will begin to draw down. on the second question and in regard to pakistan, i'm not sure quite how you phrase it. strobe, you made a generic comment? >> mike hamlin and his colleagues have put together a set of bench marks on sort of how things are going. and the trend that they feel they have identified in pakistan is ominous, negative by comparison with a year ago. >> yeah. i read mike's monthly, it's quarterly, actually, isn't it? i read mike's quarterly table with great interest. and it helped -- influenced me a lot as we tried to develop our own benchmarks. but i think we have to be very careful about two things. maybe three things. one, let's not confuse input and output. it's a very common probl

was -- >> the karzai government -- >> i think again this is one that is also better directed to the state department i think it is probably a sign of some progress house odd as that may sound that there is a healthy give-and-take between the branches of government and in a space afghanistan where the parliament, the legislature is saying we are not going to necessarily rubber-stamp the president's cabinet choices. we have checks and balances here, the congress has to confirm every cabinet selection here and a similar thing is going on there. with that said we have a process as quickly as possible because the government in afghanistan is something that needs to improve quickly and the longer there is limbo the more difficult that becomes. yes, go ahead. >> [inaudible] -- about to happen in yemen and the u.s. but already some of the top leaders pushed back of the exact level of taking from the u.s. and and and -- does that told the u.s. caused with operations to help identify [inaudible] >> i haven't seen the comments which you refer. i've seen other comments from the many military or civilian leaders t
